through milwaukee tonight. this is a live look. it's hard enough when someone you love passes away. but what happens after death -- at the funeral home -- can sometimes make it even harder. fox6 investigator meghan dwyer joins us tonight. she's found distub happening at funeral homes all over the state. this is the stuff that nightmares are made of. imagine showing up for a funeral -- and the wrong body is in the casket. how about your loved one being cremated without your permission. it might be hard to believe -- but it's happening -- and the state is doing very little to fix it. 'he wouldnt have been happy with this.' 'her last wishes, she didnt get
9:15 pm
him.' 'how can you do business like that?'they are mothers, daughters, aunts, and sisters. grieving the death of their loved ones. now speaking out so the same things dont happen to other families. 'it was like as if because we didnt spent 8, 9, 10,000 dollars on a funeral we got treated like crap.' lillie williams -- who loved to take selfies -- was almost 97 years old when she passed away this year after battling dementia. 'she didnt a straight burial.' but she did want to be buried in her favorite outfit. the funeral home refused, telling the family unless they paid for embalming, they would not touch or dress the body. 'my mother was 96 years old. she didnt deserve that. she deserved to be put away the way she wanted to be put away - and they took that away from us.' a fox6 review of state
9:16 pm
families say they are dealing with at local funeral homes.burying the wrong body, losing remains, re-using caskets, and cremating and burying bodies without permission. dozens of funeral homes all across the state have been accused of wrongdoing - with very few consequences. 'i had already felt like it was going to be a flop, that we made a big mistake.' 27:04, but it was too late. claude grimes was murdered this summer. the bill for his funeral was nearly 12-thousand dollars, but house says the funeral home was sweltering, it smelled bad, and she didnt even recognize her own son. 'should nobody child be seen like that.' she says the body was leaking fluids and was swollen, as if it had been inflated. 'it was so unprofessional. so unprofessional.' 'it shouldnt have been this way.' doris ingrams
9:17 pm
accident. at his funeral, guests got sick because the smell of rotting flesh filled the air. 'why do my son have this odor, and why is he drooling at the mouth?' in the last five years more than 150 families have complained about the service they received at wisconsin funeral homes. funeral directors have been accused of being drunk and smoking marijuana while handling bodies, casket, and even dealing heroin out of a funeral home. financial complaints are also common -- families claiming they were "preyed upon." but our research shows these cases are rarely investigated - and even more rare is actual discipline. in the last three years half of all complaints filed were closed without any investigation. only 12 percent resulted in a disciplinary order. 'when i hear things like that it
9:18 pm
disgusts me.' jeff ketch-ka grew up in the funeral home he now runs on milwaukee's south side. as president of the wisconsin funeral directors association he says there needs to be more oversight of funeral homes throughout the state -- and surprise inspections. 'knowing on any given day someone from the state can walk into your funeral home and ask for an inspection.' in wisconsin funeral homes are regulated by the state department of safety and professional services.the funeral directos board is supposed to investigate complaints, but a fox6 review of records shows sometimes even when the complaint is shocking -- like when a family says the wrong body was buried -- the state doesn't open a case. for example, in 2012 the board received this letter,expressing concern that a former priest, who had sexually abused at least one child, was working at a funeral home. while he can no longer be a priest, he can be a funeral director -- and if you
9:19 pm fact, you can do some pretty egregious things and still run a funeral home in wisconsin. jimmy davis jr. owns jd davis funeral home -- where deangelo maxwell and claude grimes were cared for. 'i want fox 6 to help me stop him from taking advantage of people." in 2012 davis was caring for a sick elderly woman at her home. he stole her credit card and wisconsin, even criminals are allowed to operate funeral homes. 'unfortunately today the only current monitoring that we have of funeral homes in the state of wisconsin is employees and competitors. thats really the only monitoring system that we have.' thomas bradley chairs the funeral directors examining board. he declined an interview. we asked to attend a recent board meeting, which was supposed to be public. but instead of meeting in person, it was a phone call. :31 'now the
9:20 pm
directors screening panel is now adjourned. thank you everyone.':40 "can i have an opportunity to ask questions? "it was not on the agenda to ask questions and so they just got off the call." 'is the funeral board supposed to be accountable to the public?' 3:26 "thats something ill have to get back to you on in writing.' the spokesperson for the state department of safety and professional services told us in an email the publi's department's utmost concern.these families, though, say they find that hard to believe given what they've been through. 'i feel like i didnt bury my son."they want a system that prevents these things from happening in the first place. 'its too late to fix it.'because, afterall, you only get one opportunity melody 'they took that away from us.'to say goodbye. all of the families we interviewed for this story have
9:21 pm
complaints are currently pending -- but the state will not tell us which funeral homes might be under investigation. the owners of northwest funeral chapel and jd davis funeral home declined interviews. they sent us statements instead. northwest funeral chapel admits it refused to bury lillie williams in her favorite outfit. they say it was because of health and safety reasons. jd davis funeral home says it treats and dignity. mr. davis told me he is working on getting everyone in our story their money back. if this kind of stuff is happening, how do you pick a good funeral home? good question. it's not easy. there is no public ratings
9:22 pm
-- compare price lists. if you have a question about a particular funeral home -- feel free to contact the fox6 investigators. we know which funeral homes have been in trouble. what we learned reporting this story we wanted to share with you. we have more advice on how to pick the right funeral home on our website fact a shooting becomes a homicide. the latest on an unusual investigation in milwaukee. plus-- a 4-alarm fire leaves hundreds of people homeless. a father and son were forced to jump out of a window. a look at the damage-- still
